This Inspired a Team of Excellent Players (Personal True Tennis Story)


inspired tennis teamI was a junior (about 13-14 years old) when the tennis team I was part of was about to play against one of the toughest tennis teams in our county.

We all knew we were going to get “killed” on the tennis court, therefore we decided to take it as a learning experience and see what made them so good.

Well, certainly their coach was the biggest reason for that particular team’s success, but one of the things that fascinated me was the following:

All their tennis courts were full of inspirational quotes posted on the fences, such as (the one that stuck in my mind still 26 years later) “If you win… continue; if you lose… continue!” 

I thought the coach’s idea was excellent to have his players read and eventually pick one of the quotes that connected with each of them.

I’ve lived a lot of my life’s experiences guided by motivational quotes. And they work to inspire and keep me going even when circumstances become harsh.

Do you have a quote that inspires you? What is it?
